Dong-Gun has a serious complex of sorts. He has low self-esteem about his appearance, particularly a scar that sits next to right eye-brow. His world changes when he drives down a street and is flagged down by a beautiful girl that gets into his car. The girl, named Hae-Joo, is blind and mistakes Dong-Gun’s car for a taxi cab and asks him to take drive her to another part of Seoul. He immediately falls for Hae-Joo and realizes that Hae-Joo’s blindness would be perfect for him and his low self-esteem. Dong-Gun soon becomes Hae-Joo’s eyes, taking her to various places and describes what everything looks like to her. When Hae-Joo asks Dong-Gun what he looks like, Dong-Gun inexplicably describes someone from his high school that he looked up to. His name ws Jun-Ha. They soon fall for each other and see each other day for 3 years. Everything changes once Hae-Joo receives a phone call from her doctor. The doctor tells her that a donor has been found and she can soon see again, once she has an operation. Dong-Gun again feels like the Beast and he doesn’t know what to do once the Beauty gets her vision back. Things are further complicated when Dong-Gun’s high school friend, Jun-Ha, randomly crosses path with Hae-Joo and falls for her as well. -- Lunapark6
This was a sweet and wonderful movie. Very realistic for the fact that if my boyfriend had been blind and was given the gift of sight, I know for a fact I would be scared to death if he thought less of me for how I looked. Who could blame Dong-gun?
In defense of Jun-ha, us girls think of guys differently. Obviously. I mean think of all of the beautiful models who are dating or married to the weird and ugly guys out there. Us girls will eventually find the beauty in a man differently than a man does a woman. Jun-ha loved Dong-gun for the way he cherished her and loved her. And again, that is all we girls want from a man....okay, most of us anyway.
This movie relays that message that beauty doesn't always come in the form of a perfectly handsome face but in the aura and heart of the way a person in treated.
Beauty is in the "eye of the beholder."
